Molecular interactions control everything from making new materials to generation of energy. However, the complexity of molecular structure and interactions has challenged accurate study and precise control of dynamics. A new scientific frontier has emerged with the work of cooling molecules to low temperatures, aiming to achieve precise control of molecular interaction processes. This is motivated by new opportunities where fundamental insights of how molecule interact and evolve will allow us to design and control chemistry and quantum materials. I will provide an overview of the field and discuss a selection of specific experiments.
